*What's in the name - PISCONERI STUDIO?

Some of you may wonder where the name PISCONERI came from, this is the brief answer. PISCONERI is one of the original Italian spelling of the name. When members of the family immigrated to the United States in the late 1800s to the early 1900s, the name PISCONERI & PISCIONERI were gradually changed to various iterations as the family members assimilated into the United States melting pot. The family name PISHNERY is one of the variations.

Since Tony & Judith work together to provide the creative services and photography for PISCONERI STUDIO, rather than taking on either of their names (or some random business name) and also to honor the original family name, they decided to choose one of the Italian spellings. So there you have the origin of the PISCONERI STUDIO name.

And what about the 'FLEUR DE LIS' symbol - definition from Wikipedia

The fleur-de-lis (or fleur-de-lys; plural: fleurs-de-lis; (pronunciation as in lease, not lee), is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means flower, and lis means lily) or iris, that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be "at one and the same time, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic",especially in heraldry.

While the fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy<= in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, members of the House of Bourbon. It remains an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics. According to French historian Georges Duby, the three leaves represent the medieval social classes: those who worked, those who fought and those who prayed.

It is also the ancient emblem of the city of Florence, and of the Swiss municipality of Schlieren.

In Florentine fleurs-de-lis, the stamens are always posed between the petals. This heraldic charge is often known as the Florentine lily to distinguish it from the conventional design. It is an emblem of the city.

Elsewhere in Italy, fleurs-de-lis have been used for some papal crownsand coats of arms, Farnese, Dukes of Parma, and by some doges of Venice.
